A STREET kitchen helping the homeless and hungry is going from strength to strength following fresh donations from well-wishers.

Jay Haywood, who runs the weekly Monday session in All Saints’ Square, this week welcomed members of Rotherham Round Table, who presented a cheque for £500 for vital supplies.

This week’s fare — prepared by a team of volunteers — included jacket potatoes, pasta salad, chilli and baguettes, as well as sausage rolls and pasties donated by Greggs, with more than 50 people being fed.

The street kitchen team is hosting a fun day at Morrison’s in Parkgate from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, with activities including face painting, live music, a raffle, tombola and the chance to meet unusual animals.
